    My girls are five weeks old today and because it's been so hot this week they've spent the last three nights in their coop. The first night I went out at dusk and moved them into the hen house because they were still in the run and making lots of distressed peeps. I figured they'd understand that that's where they should be sleeping but the last two nights I've had to do the same thing. When will they figure out how to put themselves to bed???

    It will take them about a week to adjust and start going in on their own.
